  WITI Learning From Each Other

Business Not As Usual: Creating A Safe Space to Talk About Race
Please join us on Friday, June 26, from 1:15-3PM PDT (4:15-6PM EDT) as Denise Hamilton and Fred Sugerman from RACE RELAY (TM) create a safe space to talk about race. The mission of RACE RELAY (TM) is to demonstrate - story is medicine and sharing stories with empathy at the core can be healing. So the healing begins with the process of hearing stories having a common thread; a thread that ties all human beings together - through our desires, our fears, and our racial biases. The intention of RACE RELAY (TM) is to dissolve disunity among those who are seated together, enable them to see a pattern to our biases, and perhaps go beyond tolerance to understand the commonality of our frailties.
